Women in STEM | Meet Yamilée Toussaint Beach

DISCOVERY Children’s Museum’s Kim Carter introduces us to Yamilée Toussaint Beach, the Founder & CEO of STEM From Dance. After studying mechanical engineering and being an avid dancer for over 25 years, she switched gears to teach high school algebra in an underserved community in Brooklyn through Teach For America. She started STEM From Dance in 2012 with the hope that a program that infuses dance in STEM would help to increase the number of underrepresented minority girls across the nation who pursue a future in STEM. Learn more about this extraordinary woman.
